Types of informal learning carried out (3) In our centre, informal learners would like to be able to learn all kind of what is classed as 'leisure' courses, e.g.  home management ,  photography, digital photography, basic computing skills . We often put informal courses on in response to demand such as:  Spanish conversation, card making, digital filming and editing and Family History workshops. People come in to  check and purchase tickets  , especially airlines so  online shopping/payment  is supplied.  We have  an agreement locally with Jobcentre plus , who direct jobseekers to us for  assistance with CVs, Jobsearch  and  basic computer skills .  The important activity for these visitors are generally  email, web browsing and typing up documents .  We are running a Lottery project based around  healthy eating and active living . …  we  use computers to look at self catering, food safety, savings, renting property, budgeting  etc. Examples of informal learning mentioned We get a significant number of people visiting for  help with online job applications ,  preparing and printing CV's  and  Jobsearch .

Peer to peer learning (1) ,[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],Peer to peer learning is seen by most to be invaluable
Peer to peer learning (2) ,[object Object],… many people have  founded friendships as a result of regular attendance  at informal learning opportunities. I think the indications are that  it does contribute to social cohesion . It’s  important to encourage  friendliness and communication between people from different walks of life , ages and ethnic/cultural backgrounds. You can’t push this but I like to encourage respect and a different way of seeing each other.
Role of volunteers ,[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object]
The role of technology ,[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],We developed the concept of A Digital Village … where the interests of the learning community set the agenda for what they learn. This was done using  Community Media  and  innovative use of ICT , particularly  open source software and web2 applications .  We have a  Smartboard , which is  endlessly useful , and  promotes interaction within a group . Our software includes  network tutor tools , enabling us to create a  virtual classroom environment .  Smartboards  are also an excellent tool.

How is informal learning being measured? (1) ,[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object]
How is informal learning being measured? (2) ,[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],… informal interest based learning can improve health and wellbeing… It is very difficult to quantify and thus track and report on these so called 'soft targets'… We collect data from these via feedback and initial progress form. But we do not have the staff available to turn this into a full set of courses and create individual Plans and progression charts for learners as yet.
Overriding view is that funding is limited ,[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object]
How can funding for informal learning be  improved? (1) ,[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object]
How can funding for informal learning be  improved? (2) Current frustrations include  a lot of funding being poured into support materials and marketing  for initiatives  but very little available for delivery … I think it would be great to have  funding available for the individual  so that they could chose a subject they are interested in; not target driven … With hard to reach learners you need to be able to grab the chance while you can not send them away.   …  a lot of the Government contracts seem to concentrate only on short unemployed or facing redundancy people and  the ones wanting to learn ICT for use in their daily lives are finding it very difficult to find any funded courses. What we need is  long term funding  to enable us to support informal learners. We were lucky to receive money … which means we had lots of new people but then it ended and we had to look for more money to support tutor costs.  Once the tutors go sometimes the people leave too  as they get attached to a particular person.

  • 27. How can funding for informal learning be improved? (2) Current frustrations include a lot of funding being poured into support materials and marketing for initiatives but very little available for delivery … I think it would be great to have funding available for the individual so that they could chose a subject they are interested in; not target driven … With hard to reach learners you need to be able to grab the chance while you can not send them away. … a lot of the Government contracts seem to concentrate only on short unemployed or facing redundancy people and the ones wanting to learn ICT for use in their daily lives are finding it very difficult to find any funded courses. What we need is long term funding to enable us to support informal learners. We were lucky to receive money … which means we had lots of new people but then it ended and we had to look for more money to support tutor costs. Once the tutors go sometimes the people leave too as they get attached to a particular person.
